Question about VillaWare 2010 Waffle Maker
I have a vintage Montgomery Ward model 94MW2149A 120V/950W made in September 1949. The 120V supply wire to one of the heating elements has broken. This wire is aprx. 14 guage twisted strand with a asbestos insulation. I can not find any wire locally that is heat resistence to replace and repair this unit. What can I use for a replacement wire? Thanks David Sewell

I don't know for your model type, but in many of these the heating element can be replaced. Check with an ohm meter to know if the element is actually defective, or if it is the thermo safety cutoff fuse that is blown.
If you were to do this yourself, and you know about appliance servicing, have instruments to check for proper temperature and current draw, and you will need the proper crimp-fittings (stake-ons), and crimp tool to do any of the wiring inside.

FIrst, make sure there is some kind of fat or oil in the waffle batter recipe. This is the biggest difference between waffle and pancake batter. Go to Sams or a restaurant supply store and get a spray product like waffle-off. Spray lightly aftter every few waffles. Use lightly as heavy spray can cause build up. If you can't find this product use one of the PAM type sprays for BBQ grills or maybe an olive oil based product. Regular Pam sprays build up faster as they are not really designed for this. Don't try to wash the grids between uses as they need to keep the oil coating. (Like using a cast iron skillet) They will turn a dark brown. Just brush off crumbs or use a damp rag. Make sure the waffles are completely cooked as when not completely cooked they will seperate and be very difficult to remove. They are cooked when the steam stops coming from the sides. This will take 3 - 6 minutes. Don't preheat with the iron open or allow it to stand open for any longer than necessary. (It can overheat)
